Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu | 2-8 Guests | 2 or 3 Bedrooms | 2 or 3 Baths | 3-night minimum stay




Skyfall is one of the most spectacularly located homes in the Palani Hills, set on the edge of a mountain, hidden away from the bustle of downtown Kodaikanal. Enjoy wrap-around views of lush green mountains and the spellbinding Perumal Peak, with none of the speckled Kodaikanal development to hinder the picture. If you can pull yourself away from the scenery, then within, you will find a truly charming holiday cottage fully-loaded with everything that makes for a perfect vacation in the hills. Make time for gazing at a star-filled sky or at the twinkling lights of the plains below.
